British and German Typhoon fighters intercepted Russian planes flying near Estonian airspace. This was announced on Saturday, March 18, by the press service of the Royal Air Force (RAF).

It was noted that NATO fighters intercepted the coast of Estonia for the second time this week.

“On March 17, a pair of NATO aircraft flew to intercept a Russian military passenger aircraft Tu-134, known by the NATO name Krusty, it was accompanied by two Su-27 Flanker fighters and an An- 12 Kub military transport aircraft,” the message said.

It is emphasized that the Russian aircraft was intercepted in the vicinity of the Estonian airspace.

The RAF clarified that their military aviation, along with the German Air Force, was carrying out joint NATO air patrols, and that the interception was “a normal NATO mission for Typhoons and a confirmation that the UK and Germany, along with other NATO allies, are supporting their Estonian ally at this time.”

Earlier it was reported that two F-35 fighters of the Netherlands Air Force intercepted a group of three Russian military aircraft in the skies over Poland.
